The plot to separate California from the rest of the country has been exposed thanks to a government whistleblower. Although the truth has come out, it might be too late to save California because the plan is in motion and unstoppable.
Operation Forced Divorce was initiated by Republican senators during a secret meeting in a Dirksen building cloakroom. Because they hold a majority in the U.S. Senate, they were able to write the bill and pass it, using war power authority, in total confidentiality.
An extensive study was previously performed to determine what would happen to the state once strategically placed dynamite charges were exploded and the land mass detached. When it was discovered that California would sink into the ocean, a huge pontoon tube was secretly placed underground surrounding the whole state.
According to the whistleblower, the state should float just fine, and, someday, will end up uniting with Asia somewhere between China and Indonesia. Apparently, the hardest part of the plan was making sure that Las Vegas didn't accidentally get pulled into the plan as well.
